To begin this review I'd like to copy here what the website says about this degreaser: ElementsTM Super Duty Degreaser addresses the environmental, safety and health concerns of today's housekeeping professional with its non-toxic, non-VOC and biodegradable formulation. The solvent-free Green Seal-certified microemulsion blend of concentrated ingredients is designed to outperform conventional degreasers in the toughest industrial applications. Back to me: This degreaser does exactly what it claims to and it won't kill the bacteria needed to maintain a septci system. It won't harm the environment because it has no toxins. The scent is great and the degreasing ability is as good as or better than anything you can buy at your market. You have to go to the Misco site to find a dealer in your area to get this but it's worth it. Now that I know that I've been killing bacteria in the cess pool we have here I will only use this. It sprays on and wipes off with ease. You get a gallon bottle and a spray bottle to dilute the gallon. It takes 2 ounces of the product plus water to make 1 quart of the best degreaser you could ask for. It's safe around pets, babies, and you. It cleans the toughest greasy bacon coating or just the every day counter top messes. I love it and I know you will too if you give it a try.
